Mislav of Croatia
|Duke of the Croats|
Mislav came to power at some point after Vladislav as the Duke of Croatia. He ruled from Klis in central Dalmatia, when he made Klis Fortress seat to his throne. Mislav was pious ruler. He built the Church of Saint George in Putalj (on the slopes of hill Kozjak). Today's Kaštel Sućurac got its name after the village of sv. Jure (Saint George), named after that church.
Very little is known about the rule of Mislav. He is chiefly known for signing a treaty with Pietro Tradonico, doge of Venetian Republic in 839, which led to the growth of Croatian sea power. Duke Mislav maintained good relations with the neighbouring coastal Cities of Byzantine Dalmatia unlike his predecessor, which also led to the growth of Croatian sea power as Mislav modelled Croatian ships in the likehood of the Neretvians and Venetians.
